    Hi,

    maybe someone has a solution for this. My AppleTV does not finish the syncing process. iTunes just keeps saying: "Syncing Apple TV".
    I tried restarting iTunes, reconnecting the Apple TV with my library, but nothing worked.

    Thanks for your help,

    Dive

    I have had the same problem with our Apple TV.
    It also only occasionally makes an appearance in iTunes, then disappears from the sidebar.
    I've tried removing it from the list in iTunes prefs, as well as restoring the Apple TV to factory conditions. Also adjusted firewall and rebooted router.

    It will now start to sync, but never finishes and then starts again when it pops up in iTunes...

    I just made a complete factory restore and then updated back to 2.3. It works again.

    Sorry for double post but it's back.
    iTunes just keeps syncing but there is no actual data transfer (last played, "blue dots" do not sync) but I am still able to stream my movies etc.

    /edit:

    I think I found a solution. If you use 5GhZ n Wide Channel you might want to look here: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=6987402
